One of my favourite parts of the holiday season is getting together with friends and loved ones for holiday festivities — whether I’m going out for dinner and drinks with my best girlfriends, or getting together with co-workers for a company holiday party — nothing gets me more in the spirit of the holidays than dressing up and spending quality time with all of my favourite people. And when you’re searching for the perfect look for this time of year, the more sparkle the better! I used to shy away from sequins and flashy styles, but when done right, adding a little sparkle to your wardrobe for the holidays can be tasteful not tacky, as long as you select the right cuts, silhouettes, and colours.

So in the spirit of the season, I’ve rounded up my top picks for pretty metallic holiday party dresses that will surely get you in the spirit of the season…

TFNC Allover Sequin Mini Dress with Deep Back and 3/4 Sleeve (Gold) via ASOS
This one is my absolute favourite pick — it is elegant with a classic silhouette with structured shoulders, and has a delicate, deep cut back for added visual interest. My favourite colours from ASOS are gold (above) for all of the warm skin-tonned ladies, and champagne rose gold (below) for all of the cool-tonned, fair skin beauties. I love this style so much I bought the rose gold number for myself!

ASOS NIGHT Embellished Ombre Mini Dress via ASOS
I love love love the ombre mix of earth tone sequins in this ASOS number that channels Serena Van der Woodsen vibes in it’s mini length and edgy glamour.

BB Dakota Elise Sequin Dress via Shopbop
This BB Dakota number is the perfect answer to the traditional all-black sequin dress, which can sometimes look flat. Monochromatic shades of greys give this dress dimension, and the imperfect colour blocking visually breaks up your torso for a flattering silhouette.

ASOS NIGHT Foil Print Stripe Bodycon Dress via ASOS
This ASOS bodycon dress is equal parts edgy and classy. With full-length sleeves and a high neckline, it’s allure relies on a curve-hugging asymmetrical cut that visually breaks up the torso, and stripes that create flattering lines around your shape.

alice + olivia Harrison Flared Dress via Shopbop
I love the old Hollywood glamour channeled in this alice + olivia lamé swing dress, which gets it’s sparkle from glitter, not sequins, so the opulent gold shade truly shines through. Although it’s listed at a designer price point that might break the bank, it deserved an honourable mention on this list because it’s simply stunning.

If you’re looking for a stylish alternative to a dress for your upcoming holiday soirée, this MLV beaded romper is the (comfortable) answer to a flashy sequin dress, but more understated (and with just the right amount of sparkle!)
